Brody was in his first parade this past weekend. It is the Boy Scout's 100th Anniversary and the Texas Annual Scouts Report to State. Boy Scouts, Sea Scouts, Explorer Scouts, etc. all march to the State Capitol to report to the governor what is going on in each of their councils.
They anticipated over 3000 scouts. And as they lined up over Congress Ave. Bridge, there were a ton of them.
I may be a little biased, but I think we have one of the prettiest state capitols in the country. It is made of Texas pink granite and is one of the tallest state capitols, even taller than the US Capitol building.
My guy is the one walking next to the guy all in red (that's my handsome hubby!). As soon as Brody saw me with the camera, he started to hide, so the only decent picture I have of the bratty boy is this:
I mean, look at this non-smiling 7 year old!
It was a beautiful day, in the 50's but sunny, and we had a wonderful morning walking to the capitol, viewing the House of Representative and Senate chambers, and even saw our Governor, Rick Perry, meet with the scouts.
And we even met up with some very special guests, Matt's Aunt & Uncle were in town for business and stayed over a day to spend time with us!
And finally, here's my smile:
